The Salvation Army of Wood County is collecting gently used or new coats; new hats, gloves, scarves for those in need


The Salvation Army of Wood County is accepting gently used coats as part of its annual “Warm the Family” program.

The program will run through Nov. 17.

Donations needed are for both male and female, all ages and sizes. Simply take the gently used coats to one of the Long’s Sanitary Cleaners locations listed below.

For its 42nd year, Long’s Sanitary Cleaners is the sponsor of the “Warm the Family” program by donating the dry-cleaning costs of all the gently used coats received. Early donations will help children and adults stay warm yet this fall season, though donations are being accepted through November.

Donated gently used coats can be dropped off at Longs Sanitary Cleaners, 345 N. Maple St., Bowling Green; or Sanitary Cleaners Inc., 225 Golden Gate Plaza, Maumee.

If a business, church, or organization would like to donate new coats, hats, gloves, and scarves, to the “Warm the Family” program, overseen by the Salvation Army of Wood County, contact Earlene Kilpatrick, Salvation Army volunteer at 419-601-0976.

Coats will be available to qualified applicants during The Salvation Army’s annual Thanksgiving and Christmas distributions, and throughout the winter season. For more information on receiving a coat or to learn more about The Salvation Army, and its annual Thanksgiving and Christmas distributions, contact the Bowling Green Service Center at 419-352-5918.
